GitHub Issue Management Visual Studio Extension

Sign in to queue


As I've said a couple times before, GitHub is one of the current shiny dev places, for a number of good reasons. Microsoft, Google and more use it, let alone people like you and me...

Beyond being a place to host your git repo's it can also hosts your project's issue list. There you are in Visual Studio, working on a GitHub hosted project and you need to look up an issue. Or you need to create one.

So you switch over to your browser, go to GitHub, etc., etc., etc.

Wouldn't it be nice if you didn't have to switch context and could see your issue list right in Visual Studio? Add, update and comment on them too?

Rob Prouse thought the same thing too...
